    Original title: 'Motu and Pidgin languages - Papua New Guinea is not in the dropdown menu for language option'


    Hi there,

    I don't seem to be able to add Motu and Pidgin languages in my language options for a booking form.

    Is there a possibility to add these languages so that I can input the language correctly

    I have the languages translated already and just need these to be available to those proficient in their own mother tongue.

    Thanks

    Regards

    Christine

    Hi,

    I cannot find the 2 languages that you mentioned above.

    But you can add your translations from the Settings tab:

    1624450330_60d3251a8f9e7_


    Let's say if you choose a default language:

    1624450170_60d3247a477ec_

    You can then add the translations:

    1624450188_60d3248cece41_

    Let us know how it goes.

    Hi Yau,
    I have tried this but I cannot change the language in the drop-down menu.
    There isnt any option to add others

    Hi,

    Do you want to remove Malay and add Motu and Pidgin?

    You can delete Malay by clicking the Trash bin icon

    1624457745_60d34211dd0a6_

    and add another form language but there isn't Motu and Pidgin to add, so you need to keep Malay and

    just click the pencil icon to edit, where you can add your translations for Motu and Pidgin:

    1624457890_60d342a2519e0_

    But then the flag and text will be misleading.

    So you should look for a flag or text which is close to Motu and Pidgin (example perhaps Indonesian)?

    Hope that helps.

    Gd morn Yau,
    Thank you for both your responses.
    The problem for me there is no flag for Papua New Guinea in the drop-down
    list.
    Is there a way to insert this flag (attached) as I am dealing mainly with
    the Papua New Guinea crowd?

    Good morning Christine.

    I don't think we have such a feature to add new flags.

    But Motu and Pidgin is clearly missing in our list of languages.

    I can escalate this to our backend team as a new feature request, hopefully they are willing to implement it in our coming release.

    Thank you very Yau for your prompt reply.

    sure hope they will add in cause I am promoting this in Papua New Guinea as
    I work there in the HR dept of my company. We are registering people who
    want to take the vaccination as soon as possible.
    Hoping for the best.
